How to Send Gerber Daisies


Gerber or gerbera daisies (Gerbera jamesonii) come in nearly every color imaginable. These bright flowers look just like daisies, with lots of oval-shaped petals framing a dark center. Native to South Africa, the gerber daisy is the fifth most popular flower choice for those sending bouquets, according to Proflowers. Depending on how far your flowers are traveling, you have many choices on how to send gerber daisies to commemorate a special occasion or brighten a loved one's day.

Step 1

Pick gerber daisies from your garden if you grow them. Do this in the morning or the evening, when temperatures are cool. Gather the stems into a bouquet and tie them together with a ribbon or arrange the stems in a vase to your liking. Then deliver the flowers yourself for a hand-sent bouquet, or arrange for a courier or messenger to pick them up and send them for you.

Step 2

Call local florists and ask if they have gerber daisies in stock. Discuss the color and size of the bouquet with the florist. Include a note to the recipient so she'll know who sent the daisies. Alternately, visit a local florist to put the bouquet together yourself. This allows you to customize the bouquet and is recommended when you're sending flowers within your community.

Step 3

Send gerber daisies to those far away using online florists. Browse available bouquets of gerber daisies at online florists. Select the bouquet you wish to purchase and complete the transaction online. If you don't want to purchase the items online or don't feel comfortable making Internet purchases, call the florist's contact number and finish your transaction over the telephone.
